Healthy Weekly Snack Subscription Box For Kids From Chewymoon | Review & Giveaway

When ChewyMoon got in touch with us and introduced themselves as the UK’s first nutritionally-balanced subscription snack box for children between the ages of 4 and 10, with snacks made from natural ingredients, with no refined sugar or nasties, I was keen to know more

The idea of a subscription box that provides five healthy snacks together with a fun pack comprising of comics, fact cards and totem toys, was one I straight away thought my eldest Son, Ethan, would get excited about. Ethan can be quite a bit fussy with food and trying new things, but I have recently discovered that if there's an element of some sort of fun or novelty involved with trying something new, then he's usually up for it.

Reflecting On My Childhood Mother's Day's With My Own Mum In Collaboration With Tesco

I don't have many memories of Mother's Day's when I was younger. My Mum raised my brother and I on her own until I was nine when she then met my Step-Dad. We didn't have a lot of money at all, but I hope that before then she bought herself a little treat. I hope I made her a little homemade card. Knowing me, and knowing what  I was like I probably wrote her an essay about how much I loved her and then I probably went and found something that was laying around the house and wrapped it up for her. Sometimes I'd use wrapping paper if we had some spare, but if not, it was usually a plain piece of paper.

Now that I'm a Mum myself, I really admire all that my Mum would have done for my brother and I on her own. I admire how much she would have given for us and how hard it must have been sometimes. Especially to have raised us on her own without much money. She always did what she could and she always made time for us. She taught us to be kind people, to have good manners and to never follow the crowd.

The Sibling Project - The Boys in March | 2017

Oh my two little boys - they've become such a team, really and truly they are two cheeky little rascals, that find the most amusement from ganging up together and seeing what they can get away with. ;)

Though I do have to say that the team spirit seems to vanish as soon as something comes along that they both want. These photos may seem like they are brilliant at sharing, and in one respect they really are. But in another, they're just like any other siblings - they squabble. Mostly over a random object that is the centre of the universe at that particualr moment and then is discarded and worthless the next. But hey, that's sibling-hood for you! ;) 

A lovely Way to Share & Display Photos Instantly With Nixplay IRIS

I have honestly lost count of the amount of times that I have told myself that I am going to get a photograph printed to display in a frame and then haven't. I'm so bad for it. Life and the busyness of life just always get in the way and then I forget and then I end up forgetting all about the lovely photograph I wanted to display until usually a year or so later.


Recently I was contacted by Nixplay who asked if I would be interested in reviewing one of their WiFi Cloud Frames. And in all honestly, I'd never really considered getting a digital frame before, but I'm so glad that I agreed to the review because I have really ended up loving our new frame and also loving how easy and quick it has become for us to display some of our favourite memories.

Lets Build Each Other Up

Please excuse this post if you're not into YouTube yourself. Vlogging is a big part of my life now, just as blogging is. But I remember when I first started how hard it was just to get a few words to come out of my mouth in the correct order. 

I nearly gave up, so many times in fact. But I didn't want to be beaten and I really wanted to use the platform to connect with more people and as an extension of my blog, which I enjoyed doing so much. 

I've been on YouTube properly for over a year now and I love it, it's so much fun and I love when someone says they enjoy one of my videos. But I think sometimes in this digital world, it can become far too easy to lose sight of what is truly important in life. It can be too easy to look at somebody else's life and feel bad about your own, despite having so much to be thankful for. 

The other day, I saw the quote, "The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel." and this really resonated with me. How easy is this to do on platforms like Instagram and even YouTube?! 


Imagination Is More Important Than Knowledge [The Story Corner Review & Discount Code]

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution" - Albert Einstein

What a wonderful quote.

The same words can be found over on the about page of The Story Corner website. The Story Corner is a cottage industry run from the home of Mum of two, Sowmya. She's Mum to a five year old little boy and a five month old little girl and her business The Story Corner has very much so been inspired by the little people in her life as well as her own childhood memories. 

5 Great iPhone Apps For Parents

I really love how much we are able to from our smart phones these days. Having access, on-the-go to so much from something that fits nicely in to the palm of our hand makes life as busy parents so much easier, especially for the moments that it's just not possible to get to the computer. 

Today I thought I would share five apps that I think are great to have on your phone as a parent. I hope you find my choices useful. I'd love to know what apps you also love as a parent, so please do leave me a comment below.
